Playwriting competition “You will never walk alone”
As part of the new series of events ” Lets talk about”, TR Warszawa announced a playwriting contest called “Nigdy nie będziesz szła sama” (“You will never walk alone”), aimed at stimulating reflection on the issue of women’s rights and abortion among artists, audiences and theatregoers, as well as at creating an impulse for the creation of dramatic texts on women’s rights. As part of the competition, the most valuable and artistically and factually interesting plays were selected, which will be presented in May in the form of performance readings. The readings will be directed by: Olga Ciężkowska, Tomasz Fryzeł and Karolina Szczypek awarded as part of the TR Debut 2021. Each play will be presented twice. It will be possible to see them for the second time on the last weekend of May, from 27 to 29, as part of the competition readings finale.
After reading nine texts submitted to the second stage of the Drama Contest “You Will Never You Will Never Walk Alone’, the jury including Sylwia Chutnik, Natalia Kalita, Roman Pawłowski, Klementyna Suchanow, Weronika Szczawińska decided that the following texts were qualified for the final stage of the competition:
